What works

Downloading and reading books.

What does not

"Recommended for you" opens in Chrome instead of default Iceweasel.


What was not tested

"Manage your Kindle" as I don't own one.

Additional Comments

Failed to install until I removed ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/winsxs/manifests/x86_microsoft.vc90.crt_1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b_9.0.30729.4148_none_deadbeef.manifest. After the install the program auto-ran. Upon entering my Amazon account info, I found I had 3 PD books installed. I added 96 free books to give it a test run. Nice fonts. Smooth scrolling.
